KANNUR: Thirty-year-old Youth Congress worker, Shoaib was found murdered late last night by CPI-M workers, the party said. The Left party’s leadership here has denied any role in it.
The Congress party called for a dawn-to-dusk shut down in protest of the murder in the district but allowed vehicles to ply.
According to the party, Shoaib along with a few others was waiting in front of a night eatery near Mattanoor, near here, on Monday, when four persons came in a car and threw bombs to create a scare.
They then slashed him with a sword. The incident occurred around 10.45 p.m.
